Kawasaki India, that sells Versys 1000 in India, on Thursday launched the lower displacement Versys 650 in India at a price of Rs 6.60 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The company also launched the KLX 110 – an off-road bike for kids – at Rs 2.65 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
The Kawasaki Versys 650, a dual purpose bike, looks largely similar to its elder sibling – the Versys 1000 with dual headlamps, LED tail-lamp and height adjustable windscreen.
Features such as long travel upside down suspension at the front, upright seating position and 17-inch wheels make the Versys 650 a proper touring motorcycle. Power for this touring motorcycle comes from a 649cc, four-stroke, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled fuel-injected engine. This engine churns out a maximum power output of 68.1bhp at 8.500rpm and peak torque of 64Nm at 7,500rpm.
The Kawaski Versys will be assembled locally in India via completely knocked down (CKD) units brought from Thailand. The KLX 110, on the other hand, will be imported to India as completely built up units (CBU).
